TARC Saves a Seat for Rosa Parks, Celebrates Current
African American Leaders in the Community

LOUISVILLE, KY (February 10, 2021)

During the month of February, TARC is once again saving a seat on every bus to honor Rosa Parks and her contribution to the Civil Rights movement. Each of the seats will feature a sign reminding customers of how Parks changed history on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, in 1955.

“Rosa Parks played an important role in this country’s history by shifting us toward a more inclusive direction of justice and equal rights,” said Carrie Butler, TARC’s Executive Director. “TARC is proud to join with transit agencies across the country to honor her legacy and the movement she helped to create.”

Throughout February on social media, TARC is also celebrating the significant role Black Americans have played in American History by bringing attention to historical individuals and moments in the Civil Rights movement. TARC is also proud to take the opportunity to highlight current African American leaders who are making exceptional contributions to our community every day.
